wrong The length of a barrel makes a huge differnce on your gun. a longer like a 16' on will cause uneeded friction and uses up more gas. a shorter one like a 8 down will not guide the ball enough and you will not get near as good range as with a longer barrel. a barrel in the length range from 10-14 is the best you can get. gas efficent and enough length to get the ball moveing at the right speed.
You might get decent range with a 8 inch(i have both an 8 inch A-5 stock barrel on my Pro Carb and a 14 inch bigshot btw) but it wont come nothing close to a barrel longer than that. many tests have proven this and mine have as well. you just dont get the range with a shorter barrel(8 inch or less) than with a medium sized one(10-14) for the same reason i stated.
